Don't ask why you exist, ask why not? Besides, asking why you exist is not a detailed or specific enough of a question to answer, you have to specify what part of "You" that exists are you talking about? Who Are We? Reality ?
You don't find meaning in life, that is also to broad of a question to answer. To find meaning is a process of learning, and there are many things to learn. The best way to discover what it all means is by putting together all the questions that you can answer, which still may not be enough to even come close to having a theory, so learning will have to continue, for now. Maybe the meaning of human life is to give life meaning, or maybe to discover more meaning. But it's best to break meaning down into smaller parts that you can answer. To try to answer things as a whole before you answered the parts of the whole is illogical.
" The purpose of life is a life of purpose " (Robert Byrne)
God could never be an answer to a question because God is a Question. To answer a question with another question that you cannot answer is just avoiding the question. So all you can really say is "I Don't Know Yet, or explain the Reasons Why"
You don't really find purpose in life, purpose is what you are doing at a particular moment. It's more about having a goal and knowing the purpose of that goal. Asking what is the purpose of life is not even a question because it is to broad to answer, because life is a combination of many things with many purposes. You can also say "What is the Point of Life?" But the word "Point" can mean many things, so you need to specify because there are many reasons why the many forms of life exist, not that you can answer every question, but at least answer the questions that matter, or at least answer the questions that are relevant.

This uniqueness and singleness which distinguishes each individual and gives a meaning to his existence has a bearing on creative work as much as it does on human love. When the impossibility of replacing a person is realized, it allows the responsibility which a man has for his existence and its continuance to appear in all its magnitude. A man who becomes conscious of the responsibility he bears toward a human being who affectionately waits for him, or to an unfinished work, will never be able to throw away his life. He knows the "why" for his existence, and will be able to bear almost any "how."

“I believe that we learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living, the principles are the same. In each, it is the performance of a dedicated precise set of acts, physical or intellectual, from which comes shape of achievement, a sense of one's being, a satisfaction of spirit.
